As was extensively anticipated, former ICC president Ehsan Mani has been elected unopposed as PCB chairman for a time period of three years. He was the one candidate to submit his nomination papers for the vacant put up, and all members of Board of Governors (BoG) unanimously voted for him to go the PCB. He replaces Najam Sethi, who resigned final month.
The particular assembly of the board was headed by interim chairman and election commissioner Justice (retired) Afzal Haider. Mani assumes his government powers as PCB chairman with fast impact, and had a short assembly with the BoG members after the election.
His election to the put up of chairman was thought of a mere formality after he was nominated for the place by Pakistan’s new prime minister and, thereby, patron of the PCB, Imran Khan.
